Review: LG Lucid for Verizon Wireless
The Lucid is a fine device for browsing the web, especially if you have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network. I found the web browser to speedy under both 4G and 3G coverage, though it shined under 4G LTE. The stock Android browser is beginning to get a little bit long in the tooth, but it does a fine job of rendering both HTML and mobile web sites.
The Lucid can be customized as much as any other Android smartphone. As mentioned, there are five home screen panels, plenty of widgets, and the app menu can be arranged to your liking. The Lucid also includes several themes, which go a bit further than themes I've seen on other handsets. The Lucid's themes change the fonts, appearance of the on-screen elements such as apps and widgets, as well as coloration, backgrounds, and wallpapers. They're neat, and something I wish more Android phones offered.
